Greetings, I have been looking at the lives of Jacob and his children and cannot find any information about the age at which Benjamin and Dinah died. Are there any records that shed light on this? Thanks
I am reading a historical novel "The Last Watchman of Old Cairo" by Michael David Lukas. The parts of the story about Solomon Schechter and 2 sisters and the Geniza are true. I think that the rest may be fiction.
1. The characters in the book are looking for the “Ezra Scroll,” described as “a perfect Torah scroll, without flaw or innovation" written by Ezra.
Is the Ezra Scroll real? Did Ezra write such a scroll?
2. The last name of the watchman is al-Raqb. The book states that
al-Raqb means "he who watches"and it is the 43rd name of G-d.
Is there really a 43rd name of G-d?
3. Were there people assigned as watchmen of either the Geniza or the Ibn Ezra Synagogue?
A biblically sanctioned death penalty is very hard to carry out due to the large number of conditions that must be met, including two witnesses who warned the violator in advance that his offense is a capital one. Two executions did occur in the Chumash. But were there any other executions performed in accordance with biblical law and carried out by a beit din after that?
What does the Dunamis power mean and can you give me historical information ?
Dunamis power raised Jesus from the dead ... so was wanting a Hebrew understanding - more than from Strongs or Young’s referencing
does that make sense?
